Observation 168912: Amanita “sp-T06”
When: 2014-06-12

Notes: Found in the Big Sandy Creek Unit of the Big Thicket National Preserve.
Growing singly in mixed woods.
Caps up to 5.5 cm across, somewhat zonate with striations ~ 35-40% of the cap radius.
Spore print was white and spores not amyloid.
Spores ~ 9.2-13.3 X 9.0-13.3 microns, globose to subglobose and smooth.
Q(range = 1.00-1.12. Q(ave) = 1.04.
These look similar to MO#168179 and perhaps Amanita sp-T06.
I’m getting some larger spores but the coloring, cap and stipe features look very similar.
